Start Over. Live A Happier, Healthier Life!

January 09, 2012

Start over. Run again. Leave the old behind and embrace the new.  Ignite a new spark that will light a new life filled with more meaning, experience, and fulfillment.

Here are some ways to help you start over and make this year better than last:

Accepting change.  Sometimes starting over means accepting that you are no longer the person you used to be. You might not even feel driven by the same goals, but that is ok.  Start over. As hard as it may seem in the beginning. You will be amazed at how fast things will fall into place.

Make peace with the past.  Accept all your past defeats, victories, mistakes, and decisions. Live for now.

Make a plan and stick to it.

Declutter.  Throw away clothes and devices and declutter!  The more you let go, the lighter you will feel. Change will look like a natural path, not an effort.

Break a habit.  Sometimes all you need in order to ignite a bigger change is to shift a small, unconscious behavior, like a habit.  Small steps are easier to do and to monitor.  Praise yourself for each small victory.  You will soon be there.  

Laugh more often.  Be a warrior, but don’t forget to laugh. Too much commitment, too much strain, too much seriousness can drag you down.

Forget "I can" and embrace "I do."   can may be empowering, but I do is life changing.  The only way to start fresh is to take action.
